HRA 246

It seems that everyone is gearing up for the holidays. Lots of folks on vacation already and more coming up. We've been surprised at how busy it's been even in the midst of all that is going on. It's a good kind of surprise, though. :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HRA 245

I hope all of our American friends enjoyed their Thanksgiving and the resulting time off. I had a good mixture of family, food, drinks, Twitter and even a little catching up on work-related things. In fact, I got our new website marketing workshop info and registration all up and running.
 
 
 
 
 
 

HRA 244

We received some questions at the end of the webinar last week, so I decided to answer a few here, along with answers to other questions I received during the past few weeks. Don't forget that you can also get your SEO questions answered by using our newsletter question form.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HRA 243

Lots of free stuff being offered today; be sure to read all the way through. And for all of you social media phobes, be sure to read the main article. You may be surprised to learn that social media is really nothing to be afraid of.
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 242

I've got a bunch of interesting SEO questions (and answers of course) for you today. Plus, be sure to take note of the 20% discount for WebmasterWorld's PubCon, which is coming up in just a few weeks.
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 241

I've got a great guest article for you today from copy queen Karon Thackston. In fact, by the time you read this, I'll be spending time with Karon in person in NYC for the SMX East conference. I'm looking forward to catching up with her, as it's been ages since we were last together.
 
 
 
 
 

HRA 240

No Q&A today, just an article on an SEO topic that has been on my mind lately.
 
 
 
 
 

HRA 239

The big news over the past few weeks was the release of Google's new browser called "Chrome." At first, I was not going to bother trying it because I am very pleased with Firefox and all my customized extensions. But, alas, I got sucked in...
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 238

It's time once again for an SEO Q&A email bonanza issue of the HRA. For those who are new here, the email bonanza issues are basically me digging up some of the SEO questions I've received during the past few weeks and posting them with my answers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 237

I've got a great guest article for you today on the social community that is Twitter. I hear you saying, "I've heard of Twitter and it's not for me." You are exactly who needs to read the article. Seriously. Read it. – Jill
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 236

It sure is quiet around town lately. I think most of the U.S. must be on vacation. For those of you still plodding along, enjoy the newsletter!
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 235

Just a quick note to mention our SEO Luncheon on this Friday, July 18th. We have room for a couple more people if you respond quickly.
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 234

Sorry for the delay in the newsletter. It was scheduled for last week, but I had to take care of some unexpected things. But we're back on schedule now, and all is well.
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 233 - Customer Service

Hope you enjoy today's issue. I'm curious to know what you think of it, as my article is a bit different than usual, and perhaps somewhat off-topic. So much so that all week I've been going back and forth on whether I should scrap it and start over. Feel free to email me with your thoughts, or post them in the newsletter archives.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 232

I've got a jam-packed issue today, so let's get straight to it.
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 231

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've done an SEO Q&A bonanza issue for you. Today, 3 SEO questions, plus a few other goodies.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 230

Hey, everyone! Yeah, I know, last time I said see you in 2 weeks, but I forgot that next week I'll be in Florida for my grandmother's 100th b-day. I figured it would be smarter to do the Advisor this week instead, so here you go!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 229

Today we have an SEO Q&A and a guest article on the Google AdWords quality score, plus a few other goodies.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 228

Hey everyone! I've got a great issue (as usual!) for you today, answering questions about servers, search results from different states, and info regarding SEO standards. Plus, we have a review of the SEMPO Institute's "Insider's Guide to Search Marketing" online training course.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 227

Today we have a guest article from everyone's favorite copywriting expert, Karon Thackston, on why being consistent is the key to your PPC conversions. There are also a few good links in the "Stuff You Might Like" section, as well as some really great forum threads in our Advanced SEO section.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 226

Hey everyone! Did you miss me? I was up to my eyeballs preparing for our SEO Training Class last week, so for the first time in the 7 years of writing the newsletter, I decided to skip it. I think it was also the first time that we've ever gone 3 weeks without a newsletter. But don't worry, we're back on track now, and I'm even hoping to get one out next week while I'm at SES NYC.
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 225

Aloha! This issue is coming to you from sunny Kailua.

 

You can read more about my excellent February adventure in the wrap-up at the end. For now, let's get straight to the good stuff! - Jill

 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 224

I've got a somewhat longish issue for you today, but it's got some great advice on SEO/SEM education, so I hope you don't mind the length.

 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 223

Looks like we have a bit of a B2B (business-to-business) issue for you today. But don't worry; you'll still find interesting info here even if your own business is B2C (business-to-consumer). We do find some very distinct differences between the two markets, however. At High Rankings we specialize in the B2B segment but have also served many B2C companies over the years. Each market provides its own unique challenges, which always keeps it interesting!

 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 222

The response to our new website and new HTML version of the Advisor has been phenomenal! Thanks for all your kind words. We worked very hard with the design/development company (Newfangled Web Factory) to get things just right.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

High Rankings Advisor 221

You may be receiving the first HTML version of this newsletter (if you didn't choose text-only when you signed up). Our tests showed it's working well, but I know these things always have a few bugs to work out, so let me know if you have any trouble viewing anything. There is a subscription link at the bottom of the newsletter if you wish to change your settings from text to HTML or vice-versa.
